“Great place to walk”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2013

Nature trail which winds through the marsh, around a lake, and down the beach on the Bay. Great walking or jogging path.

“For bird watchers!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 16, 2013

It was too cold and windy to be a beach day, but we loved watching a heron and egrets fishing. They have blinds in which you can sit. There were enough walkers and joggers that I wouldn't have felt unsafe on a solo visit. Dogs are welcome if leashed.

“Nice walk and beach”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2013

It was a beautiful day, and we enjoyed a circular walk here down to the beach and then back to the parking lot. The sandy beach has no shade and no seating, so we sat on a log. We wished we had bathing suits, a beach umbrella and a couple of chairs. Moms and their kids were here and people throwing sticks for their dogs to swim out to retrieve and some couples walking along. The water was a nice temperature in April. The beach was relatively clean. A paved bicycle/jogging trail intersects the nature/beach trail.

“Great walk”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2013

My son's and I visit the trail often. You can walk through some woods, down by the bay - great view of the Bay Bridge - and sit on the beach. Also see some duck's if your very quite.

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2012

View of the Bay Bridge, Ships Passing, Less Crowded than Sandy Point. Nice walk to the beach from the parking lot. Great for Kids as its really shallow for about 40 feet into the bay.
